New Beginnings...

Don't you think I should have something profound to say on this first day of 2010? Imagine my chagrin when I found that I am fresh out of wisdom at the moment...

So, I am starting the new year with another little 4 x 6 sketch that I painted this morning. Again, quite fast and without planning. I call it New Beginnings.

These quick little portraits are so enjoyable to paint as they let me experiment with fun stuff that somehow a "serious" painting inhibits a little bit. Today, I painted up a storm and will have more art to show you in the coming days.

In the meantime, I hope you started 2010 in the perfect way for you with a party or quietly, and that this new year will bring you all that you desire!!

P.S. In keeping with my 2010 theme of expansion, I have finally figured out how to make the type on my blog bigger. It's such a relief for my eyes as I hope it is for yours... In this case bigger IS better!


  1. Happy New Year, Silke! Looking forward to sharing your art and more as 2010 continues! Thanks for all you do.

  2. Hi Silke! I am glad you have started the New Year with a lot of creativity...
    Well, happy New Year again and see you.

  3. As you know what you do on New Years sets the tone for the rest of the year so it is good that you are being creative. I'm getting ready to dive inot my journaling supplies after I catch up on my blogs. Have a good day. Lorrie

  4. Happy New Year and that's a great painting. I too started out my new year with a small painting. It felt good just relaxing and enjoying. Have a great day.

  5. This is fantastic news Silke, bigger writing!
    So you can see your blog better. Oooh, just a thought, is my blog writing difficult for you?
    If so let me know how I can change it.
    Your painting looks so soft, can see you're relaxing with pinks.
    Have a great day!

    Happy New Year Silke & blessings in 2010!
